SALEM, NJ ~ February 23, 2012, the NJSPCA filed two counts of animal cruelty against Raseem McNeil after he allegedly beat & kicked his 8 week old pit bull puppy. The puppy was examined by a vet and a necropsy was performed which confirmed the severity of the injuries from this brutal attack and had to be humanely euthanized.

According to animal welfare officials, McNeil admitted to beating and kicking the defenseless puppy but did not state his motive.

According to NJSPCA officer Cooper, “because McNeil’s alleged actions caused the death of the puppy, the animal cruelty charges have been upgraded to the level of indictable animal charges.”

If found guilty, McNeil could face a maximum sentence of 18 months in prison and $3,000 in fines.

Please sign and share this petition to bring justice for this innocent & defenseless puppy. No animal deserves this.

This petition will be updated as more information becomes available; however, the intent will remain the same.

      Beating a defenseless puppy or any animal, only MONSTERS do that. That is how serial killers start out!

      This is not right or moral and he deserves the maximum penalty!
